About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

I have prepared myself to be an aggressive and dedicated criminal defense attorney since before law school. Before attending college, I followed my father and his father by joining the military and enlisted in the Army. After serving my country, I attended Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, graduating Summa Cum Laude and double majoring in English and Political Science. I then attended the Texas Tech School of Law on a full scholarship. While in law school, I received the American Jurisprudence Award which recognizes outstanding scholastic achievement in both Immigration Law and Public Health Law. In May of 2006, I graduated from law school with honors.


Shortly after opening my own practice in Lubbock with a focus on criminal defense, I accepted a position with the Federal Public Defender for the Northern District of Texas. From 2007 until 2013, I practiced exclusively in federal court representing clients charged with federal offenses ranging from theft of mail to multi-million dollar, white-collar fraud investigations. I have successfully represented clients in every aspect of a criminal case including detention hearings, probation and supervised release revocations, and trials. I have tried cases and won throughout the Northern and Western Districts of Texas which includes Amarillo, Lubbock, San Angelo, Abilene, Midland, Odessa, and Pecos and I regularly practice in front of Judges Robinson, Cummings, Solis, and Junell. These trials have covered immigration, firearm, drug, fraud, and sex offenses.


I have now opened King Law, P.C. The purpose of this firm is to provide aggressive, dedicated, and passionate criminal defense. Defending citizens charged with crimes is what I do and is who I am. If you or a loved one is facing a criminal investigation or has been charged with a crime, the most important asset you can have on your side is a criminal defense attorney dedicated to your defense and your Constitutional rights.

Excellence and superior care!
We asked Michael to help us with our son’s case. From the first impression to the final result Michael showed the outmost professionalism and competence. He was assisting us at every step of the way to achieving the best possible outcome. He went it of the way to help and provide priceless advise. Not only was he helpful regarding court case but also overall well-being of our son. We are so grateful for what he has done for our family! I highly recommend his services!

I highly recommend Michael, he's the best of the best!!!
In 2017, I contacted Michael King with King Law to represent us with respect to a difficult family matter. We knew that we needed to find an skilled, seasoned and knowledgeable defense attorney; but we also recognized that we needed a lawyer who would be practical, caring, willing and able to listen, and be fully capable of developing and refining a winning strategy. We were blessed to find Michael. Michael helped us understand all of our options and we were able to obtain the outcome we desired. Michael exceeded our expectations with enormous care, great compassion, outstanding skill, and went the extra mile for us. Thank you for all your help, Michael!

Excellent Attorney and Caring Person
Michael King represented my son in multiple cases during the past 2+ years, including DWI (his second one), Possession of Marijuana < 2 oz, Public Intoxication, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Theft < $100. My son has serious substance abuse issues, and Michael worked hard for the best outcome in each case. I was very pleased that all charges except the marijuana were dismissed – fortunate, given the number of offenses and the seriousness of my son’s cumulative history. Michael is knowledgeable, experienced and conscientious. He personally worked each case from start to finish. Michael kept me updated on status and was always responsive. He coordinated effectively with various treatment facilities when it was necessary to provide the court with proof of treatment. I’m equally impressed with Michael’s caring personality and concern for my son’s issues, even beyond the legal ones. From the beginning he stressed to my son that the most important issue to address is the substance abuse – the legal problems are secondary and will only continue if the underlying addiction isn’t treated. Michael tried to make a difference, even when my son was not receptive to help. Michael’s assistant, Stephany, is also super – she is efficient, responsive and kind.

Michael King was the best person who could have represented me, I had never been in any sort of trouble before so when I had this charge on me Michael King was recommended.

I highly recommend Michael King! Forever thankful!

Michael King...our hero!
Michael King recently represented my father in a federal case that we saw very little chance of winning. Mr. King explained everything in detail and was very honest with the whole family from the get go. He worked very hard to get the desired results and good news to a family. He doesn't give the client false expectations, but in the end you can tell how hard he worked to win the case. He is very easy to get along with and he really is here to help. I would recommend Michael King to anyone needing a criminal defense lawyer. We are forever grateful for Michael King!

Wonderful Representation!
Micheal King represented me about a year and a half ago when he was working for another firm. He represented me with diligence, and kept me very informed. He provided me with the knowledge and insight needed to assure me I was making the correct choices in what steps we took with my case. He made me feel like he truly did cared about my case, and I wasn't just another name on a piece of paper. I am very happy with my outcome and working with Micheal King made me know I was being represented by the best! I Highly recommend Mr King!

It Could Happen to Anyone!
I always thought there was no way I would ever get arrested in my life. Trust me, trouble can find anyone. My situation was truly an accidental mistake, but regardless, I found myself in a bit of trouble with the authorities. Michael King was quick to answer my questions and quick to handle my case. I really appreciate that I could contact Michael King by email, phone, or text. He is certainly dedicated and determined, and he really helped me big time. If you have been arrested or are being investigated, do not hesitate to give Michael King a call.

If I ever need a criminal lawyer, I will hire Michael King
I've been a lawyer for over 25 years and a criminal lawyer working in Lubbock for over 23 years. I am very familiar with the criminal bar in Lubbock. I worked with Mr. King for over five years at the federal public defender's office in Lubbock. We tried cases and worked closely together during that time. If I am ever charged with a criminal offense, I would hire Michael to defend me. That is the highest praise I can think of: Who would a lawyer hire to defend herself, if she were ever a criminal defendant? The answer for this long-time, successful criminal lawyer is: Michael King

Burglary of a Habitation charge dismissed!!!
Michael King was very informative and straight to the point, I gave him no reason for believing me in our first meeting but he followed through, I will say this if arrested and you are in fact innocent come see michael he will get your case dropped. That being said thank you michael for all your good work.

Michael King and the last year
Michael King explained the charges on the first meeting and explained the possible outcomes. He was with me for every interview and was willing to listen to my explanations. He is knowledgeable and comfortable in the courtroom. I would recommend him and he will be very honest about all proceedings and possibilities.

Highly recommend
First off, before I hired Mr. King i had another lawyer I will not mention, he wanted me to plead guilty to a charge i did not believe i was guilty of. That is when i knew that lawyer was not the one for me. I wanted someone who would throw anything and anyone under the bus just to make sure I was taken care of! I wanted someone who listened to me as if I were their friend or family member coming in need of help. I found that and so much more in Michael King! He always made me feel like I had nothing to worry about. He's one of the friendliest guys I've ever known, says hi to everyone and they say hi right back. He is always several steps ahead of everyone else. You feel like your the center of his attention during the tough times your going through. He's very easily accessible, always there for you. I owe so much to Michael King, he's the best of the best. Friend for life.

Third times a charm...
Mr. King was appointed to me as my Federal attorney in 2007. I was one of his first clients I believe, he and I built a friendship over the long drawn out process that it takes with the federal court system. I was not in a good place prior to my incarceration. I did receive exactly what we wanted from the courts and for that I was very grateful. I was sentenced to 3 years in the Federal prison system therefore, I could participate in RDAP which is the drug program. I truly needed this program, I am an addict and always will be! Once out of prison and on probation as some of us do I violated again Mr. King was my attorney and this time I was given a downward departure on my sentence! Thanks to his knowledge of the system and that was with a DWI conviction just so you know. And, the last time I called Mr. King was after he was on his own and I was in a panic I had three weeks till I was off of probation and I was being accused of a dirty UA and once again with his help and the resources of the medical profession he was able to prove it was in fact a false positive and I completed the four years of my Federal probation. But, I would most defiantly hire Mr. King and recommend him he knows the Federal system and he helped me all three times and I always got lectured out of love but, he has helped me be the person I am becoming Thank You!

DWI charge reduced
Michael was phenomenal with our daughter's case. She was originally charged with DWI, and ultimately through Michael's constant and professional efforts, the charge was reduced to reckless driving. Michael was supportive not just from a legal standpoint, but was always available for basic counsel and reassurance. He is truly exceptional at what he does.

A Defendant's Mother's Perspective
While he was at the federal public defender's office, Michael King represented my son on a felony charge. Mr. King was utterly professional and compassionate at the same time. I believe he had a clear grasp of the pertinent law, and diligently applied it to the facts of my son's case. He was very focused on the trial at hand, but remembered that the event was a very stressful time for my son and his family. He explained what he was doing, answering any question that he could. Even though he could not share as much with me (since I was not actually his client), he explained the law so that I could be as prepared as possible for whatever might happen, while giving me a lot of reason to trust him with my son. Though he could not guarantee any particular result, I had the utmost confidence he had done everything possible to vigorously defend my son. His passion for the law, and for criminal defense was clear. I would definitely recommend Michael King to anyone.
